    I have a question for all who installed Win10. Under Network-VPN is there now an option for IPSEC, or Cisco IPSEC VPN? Thanks in advance.

    Try this workaround for problems where apps are not starting or are stuck at the splash screen:

    1.Open an Elevated Powershell prompt by pressing the Windows Key, typing Powershell, then pressing Ctrl+Shift+Enter
    2.Paste the following command into Powershell and execute it:
    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    Now it seems like build 9901 broke the sfc /scannow and dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth functions. And PC refreshing fails.

    Windows 10 removed all partitons from my hp pavilion laptop, wont let me install ubuntu or reinstall windows 10
    what happened was when I installed windows 10 5 min lator it said it had an error and needed to restart, I did so and when my pc rebooted it said no operating system found. When I try to install ubuntu the same thing happens; no operating system found when I try to reinstall any form of windows it says no partions found. I have tried gparted and lots of other patitioning methiods none work. I tried reformating the hard drive it says it works but the same thing still happens.

    I hope someone reads this and has a solution.

    I did a clean install of Windows 10 (build 9789) using the updated ISO files from Microsoft. Like 12% of Insiders, I too got the explorer.exe restart bug. Naturally, I installed all the updates. However, I still have explorer.exe restarting continuously.

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Anyone else had problems installing on a Surface Pro 3. My start screen is really laggy and when I use the power button to go to sleep it's not actually in sleep mode. the screen is black but still backlit so when you tap the screen it goes back on.

    Sony Vegas Pro is 'incompatible.' Clicking OK on "Render As..." in 13, and the whole thing will crash. Opening lengthy projects in version 12 will lock it solid.

    Love to OP title 'issues and complaints'. Issues, yes. But complaints? It's a Technical Preview! Unless you have a second machine to install the current TP on, then leave it alone - you can pretty much guarantee that it will screw up something with your device.

    I have update my Windows 10 OS to tech preview 10041. After upgrade, my Nvidia cant open my games. Currently, I only can open my game using Intel graphic. It says some dll file is missing (ex:dimdum32.dll). I cant even register those dll even as administrator.

    Why cant I change folder permission even as administrator.error.png

    Well I have a Lumia 1020. The update is completely horrible as overtime I turn of my phone ( press the power button ), it wouldn't turn on unless I reboot my phone with the volume up/volume down/power long press. It is glitchy, the camera app is a bit weird, but it resembles the Lumia Camera 5, and generally I had to backup my phone in Windows Phone 10, because I'm going to reset and restore backup on WP 8.1 . By the way, does anyone know if I can use the WP 10 backup on WP8.1? PLS REPLY

    Well for the build that was "supposed" to address alot of the Touch GUI issues 10061 is again another freaking disaster for tablets. I literally have to toggle in and out of Tablet mode because neither tablet or desktop mode provide a full coherent OS experience on a Tablet.

    Taskbar auto hide does not even seem to work, adding new tiles to the start menu creates a couple of columns of empty space to the right, manually selecting a color scheme makes it so buttons in the notification center don;t toggle between light and dark to signify if they or on or off. Their has been little to no effort made to give Tablet Mode any behavioral options, we should have the option to turn off the taskbar in Tablet mode, power, time, display brightness, volume etc. need to be moved to the notification center whihc would take over the remaining features that the always on taskbar yielded, we should have the option to swipe through open apps etc.

    With a few toggle option in Tablet mode Tablet users could effectively customize their experience brining it on par with Win 8 on a tablet.

    Please describe the problems with Tablet Mode from your point of view. As I don't have a device to try it myself I would really appreciate your opinion.

    In general terms the over all feel is this is Win 7 on a touch device.

    Taskbars, Scroll bars, Tab bars and other Desktop GUI elements do not need to be present at all times in Tablet mode. Tablets will ALWAYS have smaller screens all these Desktop elements always on and piled onto the screen take up WAY to much real estate and make it much more difficult to use and enjoy content.

    Where is a Full screen web browser? Metro IE is gone and Spartan does not have a full screen touch mode. Again Web Browsing in win 10 has at least 20% of the screen being taken up by Taskbars, Address bars, Tab bars, Scroll bars

    Swipe to get to the task view is a much less efficient way to scrolls through open apps as opposed to just swiping through all your open apps like in Win 8.

    The Notification center needs power/restart, display brightness, time, volume control etc. They removed the charm bars and thought having an always on taskbar would replace it but then they don't realize how horrible that taskbar is for touch screens especially on smaller devices. Truly a domino effect of stupidity here. Move this stuff to the notification center and you don't need the always on Taskbar anymore.

    The Expanded start menu is a very POOR replacement for the Metro Start screen. The all apps section to the left is a PITA using touch and is much less efficient than the ALL Apps screen in Win 8. Tiles can't be as well organized and up and down scrolling of tiles is not nearly as fluid as the left and right scrolling in Win 8. Also the Start menu does not work nearly as well with active Live tiles. We should be given a toggle in the Tablet mode settings to use the old Metro Start screen instead.

    Win 10 has a "Desktop" AND "Tablet" mode their is simply no reason why each mode cannot be setup to work as efficiently as possible for the type of device you are on.

    Desktop mode should closely resemble what we have now in Win 10 and toggling to Tablet mode should auto arranged things to work more like Win 8. It is pretty simple how they need to fix this but they do not have enough time.

    Like I said to sum it all up MS threw away everything that worked well on Tablets in Win 8 and just decided to tweak Win 7 for touch devices.

    Does anyone have an different send and receive email linked to their email?? I ask because the mail and calendar apps on the desktop show the linked account... instead of my actual account. For example my outlook is, (which is what it should show) but outlook mail +calendar apps show, but calls it my outlook account and the server is the same as my server?? But when I send an email it goes through the linked account instead of my primary outlook account.
    Sorry if that doesn't make sense but it is frustrating.. looking for help

    I am on build 10130. I keep losing the ability to use Internet Explorer 11. At some point in time the icon no longer works. I am forced to uninstall it though turn windows features on and off, restart my desktop, then turn it back on and do a restart.
    I have had to do it 5 times, the most recent about 5 minutes ago.

    There's a problem with the flash shockwave for the Microsoft Edge browser. Any time I try to stream any tv shows online using the fullscreen mode, black lines are constantly appearing. Is it just me or is anyone else experiencing this issue? Also, there's a weird glitch with the Volume control. I plug my headphones in, but when trying to play media, the speakers also play.
    It goes haywire from time to time and i don't know how to fix it.
